Show your thinking /writing
I read my grandfather’s memoirs a while back, and it felt like he was in the room right there with me. He hasn’t been on this planet in more than 17 years. There are a few other people not on this earth anymore whose writing I would really appreciate right about now, or whenever really.
To write is to think. Writing is a powerful tool because we can use it to mould our thoughts into persuasive arguments. But more than that I like reading writing because it gives us some insight into the thought patterns of the writer.
Whether you think your writing or thoughts are worthy or not is really irrelevant. Being able to produce prose is what it’s about, and I encourage you to also pick up a pen and get your thoughts out on to paper. You never know who could appreciate your writing.
*p.s. I’m talking about any form of expression here, but I think writing is probably the best way to get across what you feel in a lot of cases, at least it is for me.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.
I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.
On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
